Isa Does It: Amazingly Easy, Wildly Delicious, Vegan Recipes for Every Day of the Week

By Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Well now, I don’t know about y’all but ever since the stay-at-home order I’ve been cooking three meals a day, seven days a week and I need inspiration. I have to say Isa not only does it, she does it well. This is by far her best, most user-friendly cookbook—good for the seasoned chef as well as the kitchen novice. It’s a pleasure to read (because Isa is funny, it’s kind of like having your favorite irreverent aunt in the kitchen with you). An added benefit of the cookbook is, of course, that the recipes are easy and delicious and call for regular pantry ingredients (rather than things I have to special order from San Francisco or Turkey). The photography and layout are beautiful and she even provides metric conversion charts for those of us who travel to parts of the world where you have to stick your head in the oven to light it. If I were stranded on a desert island or, say, stranded at home due to the coronavirus, this is the cookbook I would want with me.
